-do tax code, reform entitlement spending and reset spending levels. so the question is will this happen? can this happen? >> i think what we will see is resetting the spending levels. only for the next year. they only have two months and 13 days between now and the january 15th deadline. that's when the current spending plan expires. that's not a lot of time to put together something as comprehensive as this grand bargain. it would involve the tax code and entitlement spending and things that a are so huge and gaps that are so wide between the two parties, there is just not enough time to get that done. so where does that leave congress and the budget deal? it is going to be a focus on the current spending level and how we move into fiscal 2014. we have this temporary spending bill, but they need to come up with a deal that will last through 2014 and that will deal with remember the sequester that is the automatic budget cuts that come down every year. it is $110 billion automatically on january 15th. they want to stop that a from happening on the democratic side. on the republican side
with our payroll tax to attract businesses -- to give a payroll tax exemption for new hires is not a good policy. changing from a payroll tax to a gross receipts tax, where it is not based on the number of employees you have and how much they are paid, but how much business you have, your business, is a better tax structure that does not harm businesses to hire more people. harman is a strong word, but does not attach the tax to your number of employees. it is a better structure, i believe. we do a lot of things to support businesses. muni improvements happening downtown, in the more distant parts of the city. supporting businesses. infrastructure we are putting in, sidewalks, lighting. all of this is important to businesses. lots of concentration on that in the downtown area. i see it as one of the big thing that we offer. we also have a pretty city. that attracts a lot of businesses. we have certain parts of the city that have really great thinking going on. you see california, as of state. our hospitals attract a lot of minds and attention. -- uc california, sf state. >> it looks like

a but as a practical matter anyway that you can put away free tax money, save it to you are going to need it later. the way things are going you want to do as much as you can now no matter what age. gerri: i agree with that enrely. what additional vehicles should people be looking for. max out your four -- 401(k). >> if you have children, grandchildren, the 529 plan. that has not been tampered with by our politicians. that too has been enlarged from its original levels just like 401(k). so there are vehicles like that. 529 is a good one if you want to help accomplish the savings. gerri: absolutely a great idea for people out there who are looking for additional ways to save. so many folks out the are over inveed in bonds because they got burned last time around in the stock market. what are you telling your clients right now? >> well, the stock market has been in an uptrend, and it is still intact. as long as we have low inflation which we do, very low interest rates, that is where they are, and we will have them for a while longer assets have an upward bias, real estate, stocks, all kinds of asse
they knew what they were doing. even those folks couldn't afford it. it is not the rich paying more taxes. it is people who realize in order to buy insurance, which otherwise the irs is going to come after them, but in order to buy insurance, the premiums are up, the co pays are up, the deductibles are up sometimes up to several thousands of dollars. these folks are saying i can't afford health care and send my kids to college or buy the things i need to buy. has why it is outstanding -- that's why it is outstanding she says go and buy something else. the president has doctors on the team at the white house. but the moms and dads out there, the single moms and dads struggling to get through lost it and they don't know how to get it back. >> let's look atey -- lets 8 look. he said don't blame us. it is not the president's fault. >> the law does not say sears drops coverage. the law does not say you drop coverage. the insurance industry decides how it will make money. when the private companies decide that they will drop people or put them in the exchange you blame president obama. he is no
and that they're beleaguered, you know, bank. but what they do get out of it in some cases is tax deductibility. certain aspects of settlements are tax deductible. and they can use that as a negotiating chip for the entire settlement if the justice department allows it. so, we're not clear yet on how much of this will be tax deductible. that would certainly be a benefit to jpmorgan chase. and it would mean that the taxpayers are once again subsidizing this very profitable large institution. also there's a sense that, you know, maybe we can put this behind us, we've paid the freight, we are -- we've been held accountable. but again the problem with that argument is that it is the shareholders who are being held accountable, paying the price, not the actual perpetrators. >> what i hear you saying is that the wrongdoing at jpmorgan, jamie dimon's own failure to manage the offenses created by other executives and by traders and all of that, all of that cost or much of that cost is being passed down to taxpayers and shareholders? >> yes, that's correct. >> that doesn't seem fair. >> well, that's our

. a program that relies entirely on tax increases with no spending cuts? b. a program that requires $1 of spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases? or c. a program that requires at least $2 of spending cuts for every $1 of tax increases? the results of the black poll, arrived at by using a representative sample, and the tv guide poll differed. on the question about making bigger federal spending cuts, 97% of the respondents answered yes to the tv guide poll question. on the black poll, 5% favored a tax increase with no spending cuts, 27% favored a dollar-for-dollar cut on taxing and spending, and 60% favored a $2 cut in taxes for every $1 of spending cuts. it's easy to see from this example that the black poll had more depth and gave a more precise measure of opinion than did the tv guide poll. perot: if we simply keep asking the question, "is it right or wrong?" then we can get our country back on the track. poussaint: knowing something about good polling practices makes us appreciate that getting reliable polling results is trickier than it looks. it's time to pick up a shovel and

are as a country. for everybody to see. think about it -- we can keep wasteful corporate tax giveaways that working folks don't get, or we can close those loopholes and use that money to pay for things that actually create jobs. we could keep harmful cuts to education programs, or we could give more kids a head start. hire more teachers in math and science and help more kids afford a college education. we can keep doling out corporate welfare, or we can invest in renewable energy that creates jobs and lowers carbon pollution. priorities, choices, that is what this is about. and the stakes for the middle class couldn't be higher. if we don't pick the right priorities now, make the right choices now, we could hinder growth and opportunity for decades and leave our children with something less. that includes the obsession with cutting just for the sake of cutting. that doesn't help our economy grow. it will hold us back. remember, our deficits are getting smaller, not bigger. on my watch their falling at the fastest pace in 60 years. that gives us room to fix our long-term debt problems without sticki

too much. about two-thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. and compared to obamacare, which more voters actually said they wanted to repeal, these levels of support are striking. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to claim an electoral mandate for maintaining obamacare contradicted by the facts as that phaoeurbgs while using their own logic we had to call the mandate for reducing the size of government a super mandate. that's why their new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear that the senior senator from new york will soon announce a proposal to give the permanent -- give the president permanent power to borrow more. in other words, he wants to extend the debt ceiling permanently by going around congress. let me repeat that. the so-called schumer-obama plan is a plan to permanently hand the president a credit card without spending limits and without lifting a finger to address the national debt. truly outrageous, especially when you consider that our debt is now $17 trillion

group --a decade attempt rates great something like 5 billion dollars of recurring tax revenue for government at all levels without raising taxes. it creates a burst of optimism in my mind an opportunity that people will take and perhaps build new coalitions to discard the old way of doing things and build new coalitions for america to begin solving our other problems. the fourth thing i would suggest is that no amount of good policy will matter if we don't focus on a shared believe of strong families and faith as a backbone of any american renewal.
